to do. since then, the prisoners at guantanamo have been felled by the obama administration, by the ned states congress, by the majority of the mainstream media, and by the mainstream american public. when you look at what that means for the people in guantanamo that these failures have taken place, the most important fact that we need to be aware of on this day is that half of the prisoners, over half of the prisoners, had been cleared for release by a sober and responsible group government officials and lawyers. in their report that was issued three years ago, these were decisions that were made. in some cases almost four years ago, these are not people who are needed to be held because they pose a security risk or because they have ongoing intelligence value to the u.s., and yet they have not been released. the u.s. went from a very high level process -- in about half of these cases, these men were previously cleared for release by military review boards but the bush administration. in some of the cases, and you may not know this, these men were cleared as long ago as 2004, and yet t
want to welcome you to our special coverage leading into president obama's last news conference in his first term as president of the united states. the president will be meeting with reporters in the east room of the white house, he's getting ready for that, originally he was scheduled for 10:15, now it's been rescheduled to 11:30. about a half hour from now. there you're seeing a live picture of the white house right now on this monday morning, once again, this will be the president's last formal news conference. in his first term as president, he's sworn in in his second term as president. the president will open his news conference later today we're told with a statement on the debt ceiling and why he has said repeatedly over these past few weeks that he will not negotiate with republicans about raising the debt ceiling, as a result he says he won't negotiate, republicans say that is a bargaining chip that they have to try to cut spending to deal with the nation's deficit. we're watching what's going on at the white house, we'll have the full coverage of the news conference leading
as high as the rest of the country in other states like arizona, arkansas, idaho, iowa, obama, the list goes on. those rates are going to go up 65 and 100% according to this study we were looking at. how do you think that gets observed? -- absorbed? >> the good news is that we saw last year for example health care costs overall only went up 4%. it now had three years in a row with single-digit growth instead of double digit growth in health care expenditures we've seen year after year in the last generation. there is some evidence the system is getting costs under control that will help keep premiums down. you said 50% over five years, that is a 10% increase over five years each year. in none of premium increases the last 15 to 20 years. there is no significant actual increase. what we don't know is how the obama reforms on the cost side will bring costs down as more people come in to the system. there will be more unhealthy people in the system, a lot more healthy people in the system bringing more revenue for the insurance companies as well. we have to give reform time. this report wa

. >>> president obama's embattled nominee for defense secretary got a strong endorsement today from former secretary of state colin powell. the retired four-star general called chuck hagel "supremely qualified" in his words to be the next secretary of defense. powell and hagel are both vietnam vets and both republicans, but powell had some harsh words for their party saying the gop should take a very hard look at itself. >> there is also a dark -- a dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the party. what do i mean by that? what i mean by that is they still sort of look down on minorities. >> powell says he is still a republican but that his party's shift to the right has caused it to lose elections saying it has to change along with the country's population. >>> in india tonight, there is new outrage over a new incident of sexual attack. six men are behind bars tonight. police say a 29-year-old woman was brutally assaulted by a group of men including the driver of a bus on which she was traveling. last month the brutal and ultimately deadly attack against another woman on a bus caused wo
in the white house to do wit to -- deal with it. a plan is jack lew's a signal from obama that he will pursue the course he pursued in the first term, to spend as much as he needs to establish the entitlement state and tax at a higher level to pay for it. jack lew is exactly the kind of liberal historically who has been his warrior on the front in negotiating on this. there is no indication that lew would go in any other direction, and it is clear to me that by this series of agreements obama has made, unlike added a first term more features people of independent stature, he has gone from a team of rivals to team of underlings. >> well, that is one nomination, but the nomination of former srepublican senator chuck hagel to head the department of defense has generated heat and light. zbigniew brzezinski, general john johns, brent scowcroft, as well as colin powell and former defense secretary bob gates. the senate has rejected only nine cabinet nominees to will chuck hagel be the 10th? >> i don't think so. i thought he would have an easier time that he has, but when all is said and done, there
states and it was a 41,000 vote gap in west virginia. more than 230,000 in kentucky. the gap got wider when john kerry lost in 2004. you see the pattern here. president obama improved on those numbers slightly in 2008, but still lost both states and his numbers fell off the table, if you will, this past november, the gap nearly doubled to 180,000 in west virginia and he lost kentucky by more than 400,000 votes. but last year, the war on coal had become a familiar theme on billboards, campaign signs and on tv. coal related donors poured more than $12 million into the campaign. 90% of it to republican, believe it or not, but to blame the president's agenda doesn't take in the bigger picture. coal production has dropped because demand is down and easily accessible coal has disappeared. low cost natural gas and fracking threatens to cut them even more. never the less, the politics of the war on coal seems to be solidly on the side of the republicans and senator rockefell rockefeller's retirement creates a prime opportunity for the west virginia gop. shelley cap toe has said she's running a

the right thing to do. since then, the prisoners at guantanamo have sadly been filled by the obama administration and the united states congress and the courts and the majority of the mainstream media and by the american people. that is sadly the truth. when you look at what that means -- what is it mean for the people in guantanamo? the most important fact that we need to be aware of on this day is that have of the prisoners in guantanamo have been cleared for release from that prison by a very sober and responsible group of government officials and lawyers and all the government departments and intelligence agencies in a report that was issued three years ago. as moe put it, these are not people who needed to be held because they pose a security risk or because they have ongoing intelligence on the united states and yet they have not been released. united states went to a very high level process of saying to these men that we don't want to will do any more and then did not release them. in about half of these cows, the men were previously cleared for release by a military review

hagel very skeptical of the ability of the united states to do that. that is a legitimate debate. but definitely when chuck hagel and jack reed traveled with president obama when he was running for office, i think this was part of their discussion. host: what kind of relationship do these two men have, the president and senator chuck hagel? guest: they do get along personally. if you look at the first term of the obama administration, president obama was elected, there were doubts about his national security experience. it was quite natural for him to pick then senator clinton to be secretary of state and keep bob gates on as secretary of defense. i think he thinks in the second term, he is not running for reelection. he has had experience, so he is much more inclined to pick somebody who is comfortable with, which is senator chuck hagel and senator john kerry. they got along in the senate, so presumably there will get along in the administration. i would add that i do think that one has to ask why, for example, the president is willing to make a flight out of the nomination? i d

closer to the $95 a barrel mark. okay. with roughly a month to go until the united states hits its debt limit, president obama's calling on congress to raise the limit above 16.4 trillion dollars asap. republicans say spending cuts may be part of any -- must be part of any increase. who is going to win in this yet another congressional debate? gerri willis here. it's deja vu other than it's value -- valentine's day rather than new year's eve. >> the president was interesting today for a number of reasons, not that he changed his tune on the topics we talked about, but his tone was different, strident, more trying to cower republicans into what he termed the responsible thing. this is what the president had to say in the press conference. >> the debt ceiling is not a question of authorizing more spending. raising the debt ceiling does not authorize more spending. it just allows the country to pay for spending that congress has already committed to. >> well, unfortunately, that authorizes more spending, and the history of these debt limit increase z is that every time we have a debt limit
. good morning. >> good morning, jon. president obama used his final news conference of his first term to demand that congress raise this country's debt limit, warning lawmakers not to play politics with, quote, the full and faith credit of the united states. the treasury department says the u.s. has until march to increase the nation's borrowing limit. otherwise, the country will likely default on its loans. republicans do not seem to be in the mood to negotiate after compromising on the so-called fiscal cliff last month. the gop says it will only raise the debt limit if there are equal dollar for dollar cuts in spending. otherwise, many republican lawmakers have threatened to force a shutdown of the government or let the country default on its loans and hurt its credit rating. the president this morning says that is unacceptable. >> a self-inflicted wound on the economy. it would slow down our growth, might tip us into recession. and ironically, would probably increase our deficit. >> reporter: and it would, the president warned, delay checks for social security and veterans' benefit
crucial moment in the obama administration. perhaps the most important legislation they'll ever propose. because gun laws do work. studies have shown firearm deaths are significantly lower in states with stricter gun legislation. this map shows the ten states with the strongest gun laws and the ten with the lowest gun death rates. the correlation the seven states in green is strong. banning assault weapons, requiring trigger locks, and mandating safe storage works. the nra would like you to believe no legislation woot help. no one obvious law could have stopped adam lanza but we can make our world safer. public policy is meant to be aspir rational, to try to make the world better. the white house knows it just as it knows the right has gone far extreme on this, so far into second amendment absolutism, if it's not any weapon anywhere they will lead you down the

for immigration reform in the coming months. according to the new york times, president obama will ask congress to approve measures including a new path to citizenship for some of 11 million undocumented people currently in the united states, as well as a guest worker program for low-wage immigrant workers. a bipartisan group of senators is working on a comprehensive bill that could be introduced as early as march. the administration is backing eventual citizenship after deporting more than 400,000 undocumented people in the 2012 fiscal year, the largest number in u.s. history. a number of civilians have been killed in an explosion that followed a u.s.-led nato raid in afghanistan. the victims reportedly died as they tried to collect the bodies of taliban fighters who have been killed in a firefight with u.s. troops around a mosque. it is not clear what caused the explosion as the fighters had already been shot dead when the blast occurred. estimates of the civilian death toll stand between seven and 16. the latest violence comes days after president obama announced plans to speed up the transf
